A gem in the Goodwill Store...


I wandered into our local Goodwill Store this afternoon, looking for some cheap shorts for work and the usual 'dust catchers' for Mary and Lyndsay. I came up empty on those, but down at the end of the men's clothing rack they have an assortment of soccer jerseys and other synthetics. From across the room, I spotted those world championship sleeve stripes! And the Molteni on the sleeve was plainly visible too! Could it be?

Yes! It's a reproduction of a famous cycling jersey worn by none other than Eddy "The Cannibal" Merckx.

I am a happy camper. It's even a laughable XL in Italian sizing. That means it fits like a second skin. I gotta lose some weight.

Best of all....it was five bucks.

Wow, that is a score. Too bad you didn't get that slick Eddy Merckx trading card with it.
